Italy Seen through Magnum's Lens looks at Italian news, history and habits from the postwar period to the present, through the eyes of photographers from the most important, historic and authoritative agency in the world, Magnum Photos, in honor of the 70th anniversary of its founding.
Opening with a homage to Henri Cartier-Bresson and his trip to Italy in the 1930s, this extraordinary parade is a fascinating mixture of wildly famous and lesser-known photographs. Italy Seen through Magnum's Lens is a collection of voices and perspectives that offer a kaleidoscopic portrait of Italy through photographs by Bruno Barbey, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rene? Burri, Robert Capa, Raymond Depardon, Thomas Dworzak, Elliott Erwitt, Leonard Freed, Thomas Hoepker, Erich Lessing, Herbert List, Alex Majoli, Peter Marlow, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Ferdinando Scianna, David Seymour, Chris Steele-Perkins and Patrick Zachmann.
